Alumnae launches debut novel

August 22, 2023 by Denise Ing

CSI alumnae, Zalika Reid-Benta is celebrating the launch of her debut novel, River Mumma. Her debut short story collection, Frying Plantain was longlisted for the 2019 Scotiabank Giller Prize. 

River Mumma is reviewed in The Toronto Star: "The writer who makes Toronto thrilling and scary: streetcar short turns? subway failures? And where are the best patties, anyway?"

Zalika participated in an alumni panel in 2021: "CSI Alumni Zalika Reid-Benta, Chandler Levack, Phil Leers return for panel discussion."

Congratulations, Zalika on your latest publication!
